39. You're right...
In the eyes of mainstream America we don't mean much. This is what has to change before we will have the opportunity to elect a candidate that openly and legally supports us. We cannot assume that the world will change itself. Time will not correct this problem. The fact is that we are at best count 10% (give or take) of the population. 1 in 10- 2 in 20. More than 9 in 10 are feeling the squeeze at the pump and at the supermarket. More than 3 in 10 Amerians, and about 5 in 10 voters are seniors. Politicians are of course going to go after the biggest groups amongst their constituents first. It just makes good political sense. We have to mean something to the eyes of mainstream America to have a voice, to have a say in our future.
